Mad Friday part 2 | Manchester Evening News
The photographer who got that classic Renaissance shot last year has gone out on the town again. There is a gallery. I'm not sure whether he's some kind of genius savant, or whether people in Manchester just naturally fall over and/or drop things in perfect accord with the Golden Ratio.

Euro 2016 England Fans Chant About Brexit At Violent Clashes In Marseille
This is what we look like to the rest of the world. And oddly enough, it's us who get to decide whether or not we can continue to be part of their club. Thank fuck we haven't given the rest of the EU a vote in the referendum. We'd all be exiled to some draughty archipelago somewhere off in the North Atlantic before you could say "rule Britannia".

This is what we look like to the rest of the world.
"The existence of the monarchy at the apex of the class system is what justifies the entire class system and which allows balloons like Boris Johnson and Davie Cameron to imagine that they have an entitlement to rule over us. We have an etonianocracy because of the monarchy. It’s the monarchy which provides the justification for the democratic obscenity which is the House of Lords.[...] The monarchy symbolises that the UK is founded upon the privilege of the few and the entitlement of the rich. This is a country in which unfairness is a foundation of the constitution."

<q>There are themes here, on how we treat other human beings who don’t look like 'us,' how we make laws to make ourselves feel safe that just make everyone less safe, on bureaucracy and systems that punish honesty.</q>

UK immigration test to focus on stupid bullshit instead of useful stuff
But then that very process gives a very clear message: in the UK, we are obsessed with outdated irrelevancies, most specifically focused on that brief period of a few centuries during which we were an important nation, mostly as a result of pure dumb luck. Or at least that's what we're politically mandated to feel. If you can get through the test but do it with withering sarcasm, then you're British as far as I'm concerned.
